Solo-voice ensemble performs with consort of viols


Early-music vocal ensemble Les Canards Chantants, Glencairn Museum’s Ensemble in Residence, will perform in the museum’s Great Hall at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26.

Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 basic members/seniors/students, and free for gold and patron members. Advance tickets are available through Jan. 24 at the museum or 267-502-2990; after Jan. 24, they are only available at the door. Reserved seats are for patron members only.

Glencairn Museum is at 1001 Cathedral Road, Bryn Athyn.

The program, “Come Life, Come Death, I Care Not – A Musical Tour of Jacobean London,” is presented in partnership with Parthenia, an ensemble of viola da gamba players, known as a “consort.”

The music is drawn from English Renaissance composer Michael East’s “Third Book of Madrigals,” first published in 1610, containing sacred anthems, madrigals, Neapolitans, and pastorals for voices and viols, as well as a cycle of eight viol fantasias.
